Lil Uzi Vert diamond forehead: American Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, invested $24million (N9 billion) to embed a natural pink diamond into his head.
The embed now makes him look like a real life Vision – a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
According to Page Six, the American rapper spent the past four years paying for the nearly “10 to 11 carats” natural pink diamond worth $24 million.
On January 30, he tweeted that he has been paying for the natural pink stone since 2017 for a grand total of $24 million. “It’s 10 almost 11 carats,” he clarified for fans.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now . This one stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face,” he had written.
Yesternight, the rapper could be seen in a video shared on his Instagram page flaunting the pink diamond while vibing to a song. He had accompanied the video with a terse post reading ‘beauty is pain’.
He also took to Twitter to give fans a morbid update of his gem-implanted forehead. “If I don’t get it took out the right way, I could die …..,” he captioned a selfie, which showed blood leaking from the natural pink diamond. “No seriously.”
The now-deleted tweet sparked reactions from fans who were concerned with his well-being. “Bro, if this is not safe,” one user wrote. “You better take it off. I don’t want to see you dead.”
